If we discussed this topic 10 years ago we wouldn’t even have a debate on our hands. However, VH1 has caught the eye of many reality TV junkies with their all-star lineup of D-list celebrities. If VH1 signed their cast 15 years ago they would be as unstoppable as the Boston Celtics of the ’60s or Charlie Sheen in Vegas!
Back in the day MTV ruled the roost. It’s tough to compete with classics like The Real World, Singled Out, The Grind, Celebrity Death Match, and the coveted MTV Spring Break. Once VH1 moved past the Adult Top 40 phase, they introduced Pop Up Video, Behind the Music and I Love the ’80s & ’90s. In recent years, VH1 rivaled MTV programming thanks to a series of trash-tastic shows that taught us how to find love and be an overprotective father – Rock of Love, Flavor of Love, I Love New York, and Hogan Knows Best.
Today the networks are neck and neck. One satisfies our craving for reality television by promoting groups of ’80’s has-beens, while the other has us dumbfounded watching a bunch of do-nothing party animals make millions while assuming no responsibility. It’s time to decide which network is at the top of the class!
